BDVM Mac Lean Spay/Neuter Clinic

The BDVM Mac Lean Spay/Neuter Clinic

is the only free and low-cost spay/neuter clinic conveniently serving the north and west sides of Chicago.
They specialize in TNR and dedicate most of their services to cats, but also perform spay/neuter for dogs on Tuesdays and see dogs for vaccines and other care on our Monday Wellness Days.

Tree House has performed more than 15,000 surgeries since the Spay/Neuter Clinic’s opening in 2009, the majority of which were free for feral cats or discounted for pets of individuals on public assistance. This brings their total to more than 25,000 spay/neuter surgeries performed since their founding. Tree House also offers free spay/neuter packages for under-resourced individuals and families in targeted areas who have the greatest need. Call 773-227-5535 or email to make an appointment.

For more than 40 years Tree House has been working towards a No Kill Chicago–a city in which pets are not destroyed just because they are homeless. The only way to control cat and dog overpopulation and the killing of adoptable animals is by decreasing birth rates. This is why they started the first low-cost Spay/Neuter Program in the city in the 1980s and expanded their program with the opening of the BDVM Mac Lean Spay/Neuter Clinic – the only low-cost spay/neuter clinic conveniently serving Chicago’s north and west sides.

Clinic Information

 The Tree House BDVM Mac Lean Spay/Neuter Clinic will be working with a limited schedule until further notice as we work through a transitional period installing new medical software and hiring a new veterinarian. Please call 773-227-5535 ext. 0 or email to schedule an appointment or for more information. We cannot take any walk-in appointments until further notice. We appreciate your patience and we hope to be back running at full capacity soon. Thanks!

The Spay/Neuter Clinic offers spaying and neutering services, vaccinations, and parasite treatments for cats and dogs. Low-cost services are available to the public, and we offer subsidized rates for low-income clients and TNR practitioners. With the opening of this facility, we hope to increase the number of surgeries we perform for non-resident animals by more than 500 percent (5,000 in the first year of operation) or more as our funding and space allows.

Our veterinarian will quote other routine dental procedures at the time of exam. Additional fees for extractions and antibiotics when needed. Your animal must be spayed or neutered at the time of the dental.


Our first and foremost goal is to spay and neuter animals. We do not support the unnecessary breeding of cats and dogs and do not provide discounted services to those who intentionally breed their animals or opt not to spay or neuter their pet due to personal choice.

We will provide routine wellness care at our clinics, including vaccinations, heartworm test, microchips, and general wellness exams. We are not an animal hospital and do not see animals with injuries or animals that need complex exams/testing for example, such as orthopedics, allergies, or major medical issues. We do not have X-ray equipment and cannot provide services that require extensive testing and diagnostics. We also do not provide euthanasia services. We can provide basic routine services in conjunction with your pet’s spay or neuter but recommend that you have a regular veterinarian hospital for all other services.

Clinical Services include all vaccines and diagnostics.

Services include healthcare check, vaccines, blood test and microchipping. These services are provided on a regular basis each month. Check the Calendar for dates and times. Please call 630-800-2254 for an appointment.

Vaccines are $10 for licensed Illinois rescue organizations and low income families. Illinois residents that receive Public Assistance, State Aide, Link Card, Disability, Social Security or Unemployment can qualify for our program. Vaccines for the general public are $15.

Blood tests include Heartworm Test at $10 and Feline Combo Test at $20.

Microchips – Tell your cat or dog that you love them by insuring their safe return. By placing a microchip in your companion pet, animal control, animal shelters, clinics and rescues have access to identify your lost pet. For a $20 fee your pet will be chipped and registered directly to you, the pet owner. (No hidden fees). See the AVID brochure.

Clinic operates strictly on appointments. Walk-ins are not accepted.

What you need to know about ACL Spay/Neuter Surgery

We believe that spay and neuter is vital to reducing the number of homeless animals on the streets and in the shelter systems. We offer low cost spay and neuter surgeries in the Animal Care League’s Clinic at 1011 Garfield, Oak Park, IL. All surgery is done by appointment and is performed by a licensed Veterinarian. Animal must be at least 4 months (16 weeks) of age. To schedule an appointment please call 708-848-8155.

Animals must be dropped off on the day of surgery between 8:00am and 8:30am.
Dogs are required to be on leash.
Cats are required to arrive in cat carriers.
Animals scheduled for Monday surgery are picked up between 2 pm and 3 pm the same day; animals scheduled for surgery on Thursday or Friday must be picked up between 3:30 pm and 4:00 pm the same day. A $50/day fee will be assessed for any animal not picked up by the required time.

Payment for all services rendered by the Animal Care League are due at the time animals are DROPPED OFF at the shelter. We accept cash, personal checks with photo ID, and Visa, MasterCard, or Discover.

Due to the increased risks associated with anesthesia, surgery, or recovery in the following pets, our clinic will not perform surgeries on dogs over 6 years of age or cats that are over ten years of age. We do not perform surgery on dogs over 75 pounds.

We do not spay dogs in heat. If your dog is in heat you will be asked to reschedule your appointment.

We perform spay and neuter for dogs for $110.
We currently offer spay and neuter of cats for only $35 for a spay/$25 for a neuter.

We require that all pets have proof that they are current on their Distemper vaccinations. The County requires that all animals are current on their rabies vaccinations. Proof of these vaccinations will be requested at the time of drop off for surgery. If your pet is not up to date, these vaccinations will be provided the day of surgery.

Distemper vaccinations are $20 (DA2PP for dogs/FVRCP for cats). One year rabies vaccination is $20 and includes rabies certificate and tag.

In addition to reducing the number of unplanned and unexpected litters, there are other health benefits to spaying and neutering your pets. These include:

  • Reduced risk of mammary (breast) cancer

  • Eliminate risk of pyometra (infection in the uterus)

  • Eliminate risk of testicular cancer and prostatic hyperplasia

  • Reduced urine marking and urine spraying behaviors

  • Reduced urge to “roam” and get lost

  • Reduced mounting and mating behaviors

  • Possible decreased aggression between dogs

  • Reduced risk of mammary (breast) cancer

Spaying or neutering your pet before they reach sexual maturity (six months of age) has the most medical benefits.
